Hello!
My name is Meredith, I'm a University student studying Environmental Science. I hope to eventually be an English as a Second Language Teacher, a science teacher and manage an urban community garden. I love making and analyzing digital maps, beekeeping, and plants. My goal joining DeviantArt is to re-discover my love for painting and drawing!
Please feel free to message me- I love questions and advice.
Interests

  • Get a big girl job
  • Start my beehive
  • Chickens!
  • Personal Education Garden
  • Fix up my mother's house and get ready to sell!
  • TESOL/TEFL/TESL certification/ Spanish interpretation- let's get this started.
  • Look into Grad school

Bees in Baubles
Oil & Acrylic on canvas board
Here we have a beekeeper tending to their bees in baubles (love that word).  I hope you enjoy! Please feel free to critique- improvement I could have made

    For the past couple of weeks I have been taking a bee class to become a certified beekeeper! Bees are some of the most efficient and diverse pollinators around. Most recently I have been learning about our use of pesticides- in particular Neonics, that have been a cause of colony collapse. As a matter of fact, I interviewed for a volunteer position as a Campus Coordinator for Friends of the Earth- a non-profit focusing on different environmental missions. I hope that I get the position; I would love to be a part of the team to implement policies around my school. 

Beyond that!
    In this painting I really experienced a limit (of both tools and patience) to what I can do right now. I had tried to plan out the colours using colour pencils beforehand. This helped in creating the baubles and really planning out where the light was going to hit, but not much help with accurate colour on the character. I also had some issues painting the hand- it was a really nice drawing, but I am not that great at the art of abstracting quite yet!

Sun Wearing Sunglasses
Medium: Acrylics & Regret
I asked my boyfriend for an idea on what to paint- his response? 

"Sun wearing sunglasses"

"..."

It was my intention to go "Ugly Vintage" with this! 
Pardon the HORRIBLE picture quality!

Mushroom Cave
This is a cute mushroom cave~ I was playing with environments and wanted to work on the side of monochromatic and play with lights. I did this on black canvas- I find it much easier to work with and much more natural to fill in colour and light that way!
Acrylics- 8.5" x 6"
Critique is always appreciate!
Pardon the horrible picture quality

Punny Bunnies
Pardon the quality, but this is one of my favourites! I was really working on an KINDA impressionistic style- with lots of colours and not too much linework.
This was a joke between a friend at work and myself! We were both working on Easter (which I absolutely love- bright colours, weird bunnies, chocolate!) and we occasionally asked customers that were heading back toward each other to drop off notes on receipt paper (all the good sports were absolutely allowed to look! Usually they were song lyrics or drawings!). This was one of the messages I sent to her- she loved it so I decided to paint it for her. 
Pardon the terrible quality, and the way they were positioned is quite how I wanted it (it was put up during one of the first days I moved in- never quite got around to rearranging it).
Please critique this!
